I had something else I was going to post this week, but then I came across these My Life As sets and I wanted to be sure and share, just in case you wanted to try and pick some up for the holiday season. I’ll be honest, I’ve not been a big fan of My Life As clothing, the few items I’ve bought have been poorly made and/or didn’t fit great. Apparently all of the complaints have been taken to heart though, I’ve read a lot of reviews on other blogs in recent months and it doesn’t seem to be as big of an issue. At just under $10 a set, I decided to go ahead and take a chance on a couple so I could see for myself. I was not disappointed.
First I’ll show you the Ivory Lace Dress with headband. This is a knock off of an AG design, but that’s okay, it’s well done and not even close to as expensive. And it fits beautifully! Here’s Sophia modeling it for us. I paired it with the shoes from Isabelle’s meet outfit.
It was easy to put on and no problems at all closing up the velcro in the back.
A close up of the skirt:
The headband is a stretchy elastic style and fits very well. I prefer this style over the plastic band ones, these stay in place much better. Plus–has anyone else noticed that the AG ones are too short????
Next we have Kanani in the Turquoise Sequin Glitter Dress with Headband! The fit on this one wasn’t quite as good as the first, but not horrible either. It was a little snug, but not so much that I couldn’t get the velcro to close. It did make the top part fit a little weird though around the neck. I paired it with the original Truly Me meet outfit shoes, they were a perfect match!
There were quite a few other holiday style dresses, it was hard to pick favorites. I just narrowed it down to these two as we have plenty of other dresses in the wardrobe. It has bee tempting to go back and see what else is still there…
I did get one other outfit though.
They call this the Pink and Blue Casual Outfit. First, I don’t really think of that as pink, it’s more of a coral color. And when I looked at it, I saw pajamas. What do you think?
I suppose it could go either way. Shivan said it was very comfy. The pants were a little bit of a struggle to get on, but once on, they fit more like leggings. The back of the top closes, but it could stand to be cut just a wee bit larger.
The jacket is really cute on. Still looks like pj’s to me though. 😉
